Neal is hopeful that Antwi will be back in two or three weeks following the surgery, which was required after the defender experienced discomfort that ruled him out of Saturday’s final pre-season match at Monza.
“Will had surgery yesterday after a slight lump developed around his lower abdomen,” confirmed Neal. “The injury is not major, but it was causing Will discomfort; we are hopeful that he will be back training in two weeks and maybe available for selection in three weeks.”
